The Rockstar Ramblings: Naked and Stoned

The Illinois rock band, Slam Bang, have released a video for "Naked And Stoned", the first single from their new album, 'Everyday Is A Party.’ The song was written about the hot summer nights in Chicago. For those that have experienced those hot summer nights in Chicago you know that includes high humidity. This has nothing to do with the video, but it is awful and equally as bad as those long winter nights that bring thirty below wind chills.

This low budget video takes us (the viewers) behind the scenes of Ashley UWish Stewart’s photo shoot. It’s clear from the beginning that no promises were broken. It is evident this wasn’t going to be a “let’s do something classy” type of shoot. The band features Jeff Swan on vocals, Bill Gingrich (bass), Frankie Lee (guitars), and Bob Cozza on drums.

Back to the photo shoot…It appears the turn around, bend over, and lift up your shirt is this photographer’s Go-To Move. I also picture a lot of screaming the phrase “MORE FISHNETS!” during the shoot. GROUPIE ALERT! GROUPIE ALERT! (2:44, on stage with the band.)

The shock of this video is that there is no nudity and also no drug use. Maybe it is more “classy” than I have given credit. No, I think they may have just forgotten…
